We all want that beachy look where our hair looks halfway crazy and halfway stylish. Like we aren’t trying to hard but look great. That is no secret. But, when we are not lucky enough to be at the coast (or it happens to be fall), can it be achieved? Yes! Read on to see what we mean.

The secret to beachy waves in your hair

They sell products in the stores that are supposed to give you the look and feel of beachy hair but they often fall short. However, simple homemade recipes tend to work better and they definitely cost a lot less. Try not to use store-bought gel in your homemade spray. It can add a bit too much of that crunch we don’t love. Grab a pomade if you can. Wash your hair and then towel dry it and create one of these simple sprays.
